Not that many years ago, absinthe was re-legalized in the US. It had been outlawed on the grounds that the wormwood in it supposedly rots your brain. I think the consensus became that absinthe didn't rot the brain any more than other distilled spirits.

As to diluting distilled liquor being anathema (They go to all that trouble to remove the water ...), I can only imagine your anguish at the way absinthe is customarily drunk.
